Amana is under the Maytag umbrella.

Maytag customer service should be able to help but I think you may need to call instead of e-mailing.

I would suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, a bad high voltage transformer, or a bad magnetron, in that order.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

SOURCE: OTR Amana microwave- No power, lights, clock or sounds.

Either your magnetron, cooling fan, or the magnetron thermostat is failing.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Amana / Whirlpool customer service is here.

Please contact them to find your nearest authorized service center.

Hi ess0,

The Amana error code F5 means that you have a failed Electronic Range Control (ERC. The only way to resolve this problem is to have the Electronic Range Controller be replaced.

Timer descends very quickly


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.
